Rockford - where sock monkeys first began

"One of the highlights of the festival, which wraps up today, is the Sock Monkey Pageant, scheduled for 2 p.m., in which the top 10 monkeys made during the festival compete for the title of Miss Sockford. The event also features sock monkey collections from across the country.

“There is nationwide love for the sock monkey,” Young said. “And it’s so great that we can say he’s ours.” "
